Petition Closed

The future of the mighty Bears – the club we love – is hanging in the balance.

The new ARL Commission are due to meet at the end of the month to talk about expansion of the current NRL competition.  

It’s crunch time for the Bears and we are pushing for a decision on expansion.

Will you show the Commission you’re for the bears, and for a stronger League? 

Take a minute to sign the petition before September 30 – and tell your friends to do the same.

Dear Australian Rugby League Commission,

Where’s my team?

I’m one of the tens of thousands of Rugby League fans waiting for you to bring back the mighty Bears!

I want you to expand the competition and give the people of the Central Coast a team of their own – the Central Coast Bears.

The Bears have waited 12 years in the wilderness, now we need you to vote at your next meeting for an expanded competition including our Bears.

It’s not just our proud history as a foundation member of the NRL that makes the Bears a smart choice.

We have more than 30,000 supporters waiting for the Bears to take the paddock again in first grade, with our numbers growing day by day.

The Bears are roaring at the gate. Make the call, open up the comp and let us in!
